Popular Golden Orb Café and Bookshop is a favourite with locals and visitors alike as it is hidden from the road, surrounded by trees giving it a lovely, private, bushland ambiance.

When you reach the Norfolk Pine building at the end of the pathway, it feels like you’ve stumbled across someone’s cabin in the woods.  You can even light the open fire in winter!  The casual, welcoming atmosphere of the cafe is accentuated with quotes from famous authors written underfoot and on the windows and walls.

There are bookshelves of local and international authors and local souvenirs across the back of the cafe that visitors can check out whilst they’re waiting for their coffee or meal.  There is a kiddy area full of toys, helping to keep them amused- and parents relaxed.

The cafe is currently run by a husband & wife team.  Kaz is the cook, and she serves wholesome home-style meals, pastries and crepes, salads and vegetarian fare from the commercial kitchen.  Jack serves guests, and has an office on site to do all the behind-the-scenes work.

There is a large seating capacity inside surrounded by cosy Norfolk Island pine and outside in a garden setting.  The furniture is a mixture of cane and pine tables, chairs and benches.  Open 6 days per week for b’fast & lunch, they currently close on Mondays.  For the convenience of guests there is a bathroom on the premises.

The Golden Orb has a loyal clientele of locals and a steady influx of tourist visitors, many of whom visit through strong local recommendations and word of mouth.  Once a week there are traditional Polynesian weavers there, teaching each other, guiding the next generation, and inviting visitors to sit with them and join in.

The café has good returns, increasing year by year.  The fact that they do not have to promote themselves means there is room for improvement, if desired.  The owners have always loved the work, but it is time for them to enjoy their retirement.  They are offering the business on a WIWO basis at $130,000.
